The “not ready for prime time” (and haven’t been since the early 1990′s) crew over at Saturday Night Live must have had a “What would Jesus do” moment over the weekend, which culminated in yet another irreverent, contemptible, anti-Christian skit. SNL, like all liberal outlets, is very comfortable, very relaxed, in ridiculing Christianity. However, would they ever have put on a skit where Muhammad appeared to Osama Bin Laden and told him to “take it down a notch”? Would SNL ever do a skit that introduces Muhammad to any radical Muslim terrorist person or group and tell them to “take it down a notch”?
Would SNL, or any liberal media outlet be so bold, so brazen, so courageous? What do we know Muslims would do, if ever that happened? Here is your irony liberals, including SNL, either don’t see or just don’t seem to care about!
In a clear effort to belittle both Christianity and Denver Broncos quarterback, Tim Tebow, and his “victory prayer”, a routine he has engaged in numerous times this football season, which has put him in an extremely unfavorable light with liberals, SNL has brought Jesus Christ in to have a talk with Tim about his “religious antics” on the football field, urging him to “take it down a notch”, for the sake of all liberals, and liberal Christians, who are at odds with religion (Christianity) on the football field.
Of course the real motivation in this skit, its “point”, has more to do with the left’s irritation it has with such an open expression of Christian devotion, right there for all the public to see and to bear witness. Such an act of indignation, of rudeness, so hostile to a liberal’s mind, it becomes inconceivable to them, causes great stress, a profound and throbbing headache, perhaps; chills, numbness, shortness of breath, and the like. Never mind that the many millions of Christian who watch football are not at all irked by Tim’s display and even find it to be reassuring, a blessing, as it were. Neither would any rationalist, of any philosophical belief, feel overwhelmed by Tim’s actions.
But – would SNL ever perform a similar skit, with a bit of a tweak, replacing Jesus with Muhammad, and replacing Tim Tebow with, say a Muslim homicide bomber who is just about to blow himself up, along with a group of school children? Would SNL ever have the gall, the guts, to chide, even briefly, the Islamic faith, that part of it which has corrupted its host as a cancer which invades the body?
Christianity is easy to mock because there are no real Christian terrorists in the world; no Christian homicide bombers; no Christian Taliban; no Christian Hamas; no Christian PLO; no Christian Brotherhood – no Christians out committing murder, violence and mayhem in the name of Christianity. Certainly not to the fanatical degree and extent Muslims do. In other words Christians do not overreact when they are made fun of. There is no retribution, no “hell to pay” when Christians are portrayed negatively. SNL hides behind its “first amendments rights”. But this ensemble knows that if it ever did put on a “What would Muhammad do” skit, radical, demonic Muslim terrorists would not shrink away, slink around or shriek effeminately and run away from, our constitutional right to freedom of speech. SNL knows these Muslims would react. And they know how they would react.
Liberals, as those who make up the cast of SNL, despise religion, even Islam. They won’t admit it, but we all know it. And yet, how dangerous is the world now, and since 9-11, because of Islam, because less than a quarter of its entire body of believers has perverted this religion, bent it, distorted it, twisted and tangled it into something ungodly, unholy, unworldly and unworthy of anyone’s respect? For too long this minority of Muslim religious fanatics has held hostage a people who fear to rise up and reclaim Islam for their own, in the name of peace rather than in submission.
Liberals fear these Nazi-like radicals as well. Which is why out of “respect” for Islam they do not mock Muslims in the same viscous, horrible, degrading, judgmental manner they do with regards to Christianity and Christians. In other words, they are cowards!
What real “danger” does Christianity pose to the world, to the people of the world? Neither Christianity, nor its followers, is any longer living in the past, or in an age long since passed. Despite the attempts of some Christians who might want us to return to a time no longer compatible with today’s rationality and sensibility, and knowledge – a world under the influence of a James Ussher or Cotton Mather for example. This type of strict Christianity is no longer prevalent. It wasn’t all that prevalent then. Why does one suppose there are so many different and varied Christian sects in America and around the world? What other reason for such schism could there have been except fundamental disagreement? Would Muslims ever do more than think to break away from overbearing and tyrannical leaders within their own faith? And what would be the results from that?
We have much more to fear from Islam, and from the radically supercharged illusion of Islam its minority of crazy, whacked out followers want the world to submit to by force and upon pain and penalty of death. For that, liberals, including the cast of SNL, keeps their mouths shout with anything to do with Islam; anything that might offend, insult, disrespect, be misconstrued or taken the wrong way, or be perceived to be a threat to Islam. It is not for political correctness, or out of respect, but rather from a deep, an abiding sense of sheer terror.
This is exactly how liberals remember Christianity from centuries ago. This is Islam today! Will this be Islam tomorrow? Or will “cooler heads” prevail?
